Feb 16 - The US Justice Department said on Thursday President Donald Trump would replace his executive order suspending travel from seven Muslim-majority countries "in the near future," according to a court filing.

The Justice Department said that given the upcoming replacement, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals should not reconsider an earlier ruling that suspended Trump's Jan. 27 order.
